Here's a mathematical formula that might help you out. It does involve a bit of research though:
The number of tickets won at Eli's birthday party held in February
The age Leah turned on her birthday this year
For those who were present at the party or who already know the answer, please don't spoil it. I'll post the correct answer next time I get a chance to blog, which is not too often, unfortunately! I know you are all just dying to find out!!! A gold star goes to the first one with the correct answer.
